I can’t believe that the novel has already been out for a year and that the paperback will be out at the end of September. The whole experience of researching and writing the book—learning about the dangers to all life, right along with my characters—has been quite an adventure. I have also been honored to speak at conferences in Mexico and the Netherlands and be on the NPR radio programs "Forum" and "Here and Now."
I am so excited to able to share with you that I have recently been offered a matching grant of $25,000 from a foundation to develop an educational outreach campaign using Eye of the Whale as the main outreach tool. I am hoping to raise funds from devoted readers to match this grant and support educational talks. Asking for money is always something that is uncomfortable, especially when it is my joy to give to my readers rather than to ask for their help. I hope you will see this as an opportunity to join with me, and others in the environmental movement, who care about the health of our water and our children.
I want to say Thank You again, not just for reading my books, but for everything you do to help make the world a healthier, wiser, and more sustainable place for future generations!
